What led you to take the Cambridge MBA?

Doing the Cambridge MBA is a significant opportunity not only to strengthen my technical business skills, but also to gain insight and perspective from a range of outstanding students across the world. I was drawn to Cambridge because of the focus on entrepreneurship and the way classroom learning is combined with practical application. I was keen to have a fully immersive experience, which is complemented by the 12 month programme structure. 

Describe the biggest accomplishment in your career so far

There is no single accomplishment that stands out in my career, but I think what I am most personally proud of is moving to New York from Australia and pursuing a new career path. When I first moved I didn’t know anyone in the city and leaving the law represented a risk, but ultimately it was the best decision I’ve made so far.

How do you feel about being awarded your scholarships?

I am truly honoured to have received both awards and I am grateful to the Cambridge Trust and Dr Whaley for their generosity. Grants such as this play an important role in encouraging women to follow their ambitions and invest in their own development. In addition, the mentoring with Dr Whaley represents an invaluable opportunity which I am very much looking forward to.   

Something that not many people know about you

I love to paint and draw. This is what first took me to New York in 2013, where I completed my art residency.
